What can teachers learn from a good coach?

In the October 2013 issue of Harvard Business Review, Anita Elberse interviewed Sir Alex Ferguson, the famous and accomplished coach and manager of Manchester United, the English football (soccer) ...

 

- I feel okay (I feel safe)

 

- It matters (The curriculum is relevant and interesting)

 

- It’s active (I am asked to do things)

 

- It stretches me (but not too much)

 

- I have a coach (the teacher coaches me)

 

- I have to use it (apply what I learned in new and interesting ways)

 

- I think back on it (I am given time to reflect on what I learn)

 

- I plan my next steps (where will I go with what I learn)

The Rice Process's insight:

“Teaching and facilitating are the ultimate ways to reach excellent mental conditioning and to challenge students to become better all-round learners for life.

 

You can help your students reach their potential as a Sprinter or Olympic learner. The analogy is simple: begin with the end in mind, recognizing that all teaching, all learning, all preparation requires time, training, and transitions.

What is Coaching? | Classroom Coaches

What is Coaching? | Classroom Coaches | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

What is Coaching?

Over 2,400 years ago, at the height of the Athenian enlightenment, Socrates asserted that teachers should help students to uncover information for themselves. This was a radical departure from the traditional approach of the time, which thought of students as empty vessels and of teachers as dispensers of information. The Socratic philosophy of teaching set the stage for coaching, which aims to unlock and increase potential and learning.

Whether a coach is helping a teacher improve, or a teacher is using the same skills with students in the classroom, coaching allows for a constructionist theory of education. This allows for the individuals to create strategies for themselves.

The Goal of Coaching

Coaching is concerned with long-term skill development rather than with quick fixes or temporary understanding. We define coaches as those who offer inspiration, guidance, training, and modeling, and who enhance others’ abilities through motivation and support (Longenecker & Pinkel, 1997). The goal of a coach is to increase achievement by helping someone:

Find their inner strengths and passions in order to nurture self-worth and identity,Have a voice in their own learning and negotiate collectively with the instructor to create the goals and objectives,Passionately engage in talking content to increase memory retention and fuel motivation to learn, and,Use their inner talents to bring their work to the highest level of scholarship attainable.
